Review: Wet ‘n Wild 8-Pan Palette in Comfort Zone

16 Jan

Hello everyone! A palette review today and this palette has gotten a lot more usage since these photos were taken as this has been one of my favorites to pull out for the lovely green shades for the holidays. Who are we kidding this palette works all year round!

Description: An 8-pan palette consisting of a cream yellow shimmer, pink shimmer, bronze brown shimmer, dark chocolate brown with gold glitter, greenish taupe shimmer, mid-tone grass green with shimmer, dark green with gold glitter and a duo chrome brown with green shimmers. My swatches doesn’t do this palette any justice.

Review: This is a great everyday palette especially with the colors on the left side of the palette. The shadows themselves are pigmented, blendable and easy to work with. With a primer they last 6-8 hours but without a mere 4 hours for all shades. They have a tendency to product fall out if you tap your brush in too much the powders are very loose in the pans. My favorite shade in this palette is the top left the taupe green shade because it’s such a unique shade that I don’t have in my collection at all. Overall, a great basic palette that everyone must have.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ local Supermarkets and Grocery Stores

Would I recommend this product? Yes! I mean what is not to love about this product?

Review: Wet ‘n Wild Trio in I Got Good Jeans

5 Jun

Hello everyone! This is the second last trio review from Wet ‘n Wild so it is almost to it’s end.

Description: A trio filled with royal shades Browbone a shimmering silver light blue, Crease a shimmering dark navy blue, and Eyelid a darker copper gold.

Review: Out of all the palettes I use this is one of my favourite go tos because of the gold and blue they just work so well together and I always like reaching for blues for some odd reason. But this palette is a little different from the others as the navy blue is actually not that pigmented and is hard to work with compared with the other shades. These shades work very well with each other and is a great palette. Staying power is the same as the others a full 8 hours and 4 hours without primer. Once again they are easy to blend but also easy to blend the color off your eyelid. Overall, another great trio from Wet ‘n Wild that I love.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ Superstore and Walmart

Would I recommend this product? Yes, as it is a very good trio and the gold eyeshadow is to die for.

Review: Quo Summer Fantasy Palette – Beautiful

10 Jun

Hello everyone! So finally I get around to review this palette. There are two other variations of this palette the only thing that varies between the palettes are the eyeshadow colors. The other palettes are called Fame and Celebrity.

 (5th swatch in is the blush blended together)

Review: Beautiful really is… pretty (thought I was going to type beautiful didn’t you?). It has pretty shades that are workable for any skintone and the feel of these are sooo soft and silky it’s great. Pigmentation is so-so it’s not the most pigmented product out there but it’s good as you can build up the color as needed. There is no scent from these and lasts for about a regular workday so 6-8 hours. For the eyeshadow best to use primer underneath as it can slip and slide as the shades are just super silky. Overall a pretty great travel palette but I wish instead of two spongetip applicators I would like a brush and maybe an applicator.

Cost: $20CDN exclusively @ Shoppers Drug Mart Limited Release

Would I recommend this product? I would totally recommend this palette and it’s pretty multi-talented and perfect for travelling around.

Review: Joe Fresh Five Minute Face Palette

5 Sep

Hello everyone! So I picked up this palette and was playing around with it this weekend and finally a review on it! Insert many many photos. (come to think of it, this is the first time I have reviewed anything with eyeshadow and included swatches…)

Swatches –

Review: I’m going to review it in parts but as a good note the eyeshadows and blushes are FULL-SIZED!! (hooray for more bang for your buck)
Eyeshadows consists of Pale Pink, Bronze, Expresso, and Midnight. Pale pink really is a sheer color and works as a nice sheen over the lids; bronze has a subtle sheen like pale pink kinda coppery without too much shimmer; expresso looks pretty matte brown shade but has some shimmers in it; midnight is all out blackened silver glitter discoball fun for those nights out. Overall the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and are soft enough to work with. There was a lot of fallout with Midnight but I guess that was kinda expected.
Cheek products are Pink blush and Tan bronzer. Both have shimmers in them (but subtle so that they help create a glow on the skin), and they are both really soft powdery blushes. Downfall is that they are too soft this leads to a lot of fallout on the palette itself and they are like MAC sheertone blushes (just there for some shine and not much color).
Lippies are Mauve gloss and Plum cream lipstick. I dislike where these were placed they are smackdab in the middle and there are many opportunities for eyeshadow or blush fallout can fall into them. But the shades are really nice mauve is a bright light pink and has pink shimmers in it (kinda reminds me of Stila’s Pinkle Twinkle lipglaze). Plum is a semi-dark berry color and is extremely creamy and easy to apply on the lips. The lipgloss wasn’t as sticky and stuck on pretty well throughout the day. Both the lipstick and lipgloss were very pigmented and were extremely moisterizing (A+ for moisterizing factor!).
A really well put together palette.  

Cost: $20.00CDN at your local Loblaws/Superstore

Would I recommend this palette? I would recommend this palette as a great starter for those starting out with makeup. This palette would be great for those who only have a limited amount of time in the morning (as it was intended for) or to transition a day look into a sultry night look. Those who have a lot of makeup you can skip out on this palette it’s nothing to awe-inspiring (and you probably have most of the shades  already).
